Summary MESS-specific 07118: megadriv: BTANB: Sprite priority in Megadrive
Description The sprite priority in Mame is wrong when we talk about the score section. Some examples are Castle Of Illussion, Sonic 2 and the first Streets Of Rage.
However there are several games showing different priorities in some stages. Some examples are:
-Streets of rage 2: Some stages with the correct priority (1-3) and others where the characters overwrite the score area (4 and above).
-Revenge of shinobi: At stage 1-1 the score area is overwritten, but at stage 4-1, characters appears behind the score area.

Checked with my original cardtridges and added for reference as a BTANB report.
Steps To Reproduce Play the game and look when some characters get into the screen from the upper section.
Additional Information -Streets os rage 2: YT video played in an original Genesis console:

-Revenge of shinobi: Youtube video from an original japanese cardtridge:

Are those snaps from MAME or the original off a capture card?

We need proof from the original before we can verify it, if you can provide it.

It's difficult for me to take a snap of my original console now, instead I'v found a YT video played in an original Genesis console:
Min 10:36 --> Fight against second boss (You can see him flying in the score section
Min 23:18 --> Elevator section, you'll see enemies overwritting score area
